Tabula Rasa: Creature AI Changes Video

Updated Tue, Feb 26, 2008 by Taea

One of the more intriguing elements of any massively multiplayer online game is the developer's ability to change the level of AI within the game to adapt to current trends by the player base, and Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa is no different. After only a few months on the market, the Tabula Rasa team opted to make several of these changes to the behaviors of common monsters. In the latest update, both the Thrax Pistol Soldier and the Juggernaut (along with several other enemy and ally NPCs) have received substantial updates to their AI. With these changes on the way, the Tabula Rasa team opted to enlist the help of the Ten Ton Hammer staff to get the word out on these new changes, and we're proud to present an exclusive developer video of the new NPC behaviors!
